    Love this thread...

    What did you have to do to handle the excess RT wiring or any changes to the RT wiring to do the migration?

    Like he said. I also removed the turn signal buzzer and its relay. Left the clock/volt meter harness for the S fairing install. Only had to add wiring for front turn signals, had extra blades on the fuse board to plug into. All this was easy to do.

    So You didn't tie into the existing RT turn signal wires? Or buy the "normal" turn signal harnesses?

    How do you route those wires around the fork leg?

    I guess it will become clear to me when I get closer to it.

    Tink, after seeing this in person, all I can say is (and I've never thought I'd critique your phtography skills :thumbup) but these photos don't do that paint job justice. :D

    Ya, I know, the photos are crap. I had my camera set on some wacky 1600 ISO night shot settings that day from the night before. Did not follow my own advise to "reset, reset, reset" my camera before shooting. This is why I don't shot photos for a living.

    By the time I realized my error it was dark and the garage had been put away for the night.

    @Tink, et al.

    I am ordering some parts for my RT conversion.

    I need a brake line.

    My RT is a 92 with single brake line.

    Motobins has a Brake line for 86-on RS twins

    Will that work with the S bars or will it be short?

    Spent the day installing the front brakes and "trying" to bleed the rears.

    The front brakes went together like a breeze. The rear, not so. Struggled to bleed the rears, finally pushed fluid back into the system from the caliper... this was going well, or so I thought, until the hose jumped off the tool and sprayed brake fluied EVERYWHERE!!!
    :kboom

    OMG, what a mess. :cry

    Got that cleaned up, but peddle is STILL soft, shoot!!!

    Put the project away for the night, pounded down a couple of beers, will figure this out later.

    Tink,

    Fill the rear reservoir, hook a line up to the bleeder, put line in bottle. Open bleeder.

    Wait for fluid to run out of bleeder into line.

    Then just pressure bleed as normal, 3 pumps, hold down, open bleeder, pedal down. Close bleeder.


    Make sure you wipe up the fluid mess with clean water or your paint will hate you.

    Thanx!

    Let us know if you "feel" that surface when you start riding. I have some surface grunge I need to get off mine as well.

    You won't notice a thing after hitting it with a disc. First couple stops it'll bed the pads in, then it's smooth braking.

    Can use a scotch brite disc. Or the actually make a brake surface prep disc.

    Thanx! I was thinking Scitchbrite, but will look into the surface prep disc.

    The price of those rotors is staggering!
